The Experienced Fundraiser Group  - A unique professional development event

Wednesday 17th November 10am - 4pm. 129 Deansgate, Centurion House, Manchester


About this event

The Experienced Fundraiser Group is for you if you are;

  • Someone that has been working in fundraising or development for three years or more;

  • You would like to continue developing your skills

  • You see the importance of building supportive networks.


This small group meets to share experiences, in confidence, and learn from other professionals.

The day allows you to reflect on successes, seek support for those challenges that keep you awake at night, network with other experienced fundraisers and participate in, in-depth discussions about some of the biggest dilemmas that face fundraisers and leaders in the third sector.

This month we will discuss - Brand and how it can be used to re-energise the marketing and fundraising of an organisation.

The day is split into two parts, with the reflection and group coaching in the morning and the expert learning and development session in the afternoon.

Lunch is kindly sponsored by Charity People and is usually at Wagamama's!


Jo will lead a session to discuss how to identify the right time to change your brand, how to balance what marketing AND fundraising need from a successful brand, and explain the process she uses with clients going through a rebrand or brand refresh project. Plus there will be loads of fab examples and behind-the-scenes insights!
